Honey Lime Cilantro Buffalo Wings


This is a pretty simple recipe.  The idea was to lighten up regular buffalo wings with a bit of citrus and chopped cilantro.  I think the effect was pretty good.  The sauce was just a bit hot with a nice sweetness from the honey.  The lime juice sharpened all the flavors and the cilantro made everything taste fresh.  These would be great on Super Bowl Sunday.  Here’s the recipe:

Honey Lime Cilantro Buffalo Wings

3 lb chicken wings

3/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

juice of 1 lime

2 T butter, melted

Cook wings, either by baking or deep frying.  Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a small bowl.  When the chicken is cooked, toss in sauce and then place under the broiler until the sauce becomes glaze-like.  Serve.

    the sauce turned out delicious! this is our new go-to wing sauce. we liked them better than the regular hot wings we made at the same time. i think because of less butter (than regular hot wing sauce recipes made with franks), it turns out much less salty which really helped the flavor. woo!
